Ohio Birther Gets Bowled Over!!!

“Miss Marble” Did Indeed Have One Marble, But Where Were The Others???

As the ObamaReleaseYourRecords blog reports, Ohio Birther Susan Daniels, P.I. got a reality check from Geauga County Prosecuting Attorney, David Joyce:

Here is where you can read the entire story:

Daniels follows in the footsteps of other illustrious  Birthers, such as Orly Taitz,  Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the entire Cold Case Posse, in failing to check out the criminal statutes BEFORE alleging a crime has been committing, and gathering the requisite evidence BEFORE running off to the fuzz.  Or running off at the mouth.

Daniels is the alleged private investigator whose sloppy investigatory skills help start the whole Obama has 39 social security numbers Birther claim several years ago:

http://irregulartimes.com/index.php/archives/2010/05/17/fact-check-neil-sankey-barack-obama-27-numbers/

Her partner in stupid, Neil Sankey, had enough sense to realize that the database search didn’t prove anything because none of it could be linked to Obama.  But Daniels is the really slow learner of the pair, and has yet to grasp that  simple fact.  Compounding those failures is an inability to read and comprehend easy statements written in English. Daniels has been carrying on to beat the band that there is something fishy about Obama having a Connecticut social security number. My personal guess is that someone at the Social Security Administration made a typo back in 1977. It doesn’t matter because as the SSA states:

Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant’s mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence.   Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

In spite of this, Daniels went ahead and filed a Birther eligibility suit in Ohio. When she realized that the suit was about to be dismissed, and she would not be getting any more attention, she filed another claim with the courts requesting an identity theft criminal investigation because of the social security number.  Unfortunately for Ms. Daniels, The Geauga County prosecuting attorney CAN read and he told her the same thing as the SSA did, on page two of his letter. Here is a pdf copy in case anybody has problems with scribd at the link above:

David Joyce Letter

To add a little extra twist to the knife, David Joyce is a Republican. As she whines in the ORYR link above:

We are in serious trouble when a Republican prosecutor, David Joyce, who is now running for congress, does not care enough to look into a felony being committed by Barack Obama. The information in the letterfrom the SSA was added after I discovered that Obama is using a fraudulent social security number. The residence had to be in the state where the number was issued. They are lying. The issue could be cleared up by the prosecutor sending a letter to the SSA asking for a copy of the original application that goes with xxx-xx-4425. Apparently, that was too much trouble.

No. Actually, it is Daniels’ idiotic claim that is in trouble.  This is what happens every time that grown-ups have to deal with Birther silliness. But, she is way too much of an attention-whore to just shut up and go away. I wonder what she will try next???

Susan, Desperately Seeking!!!

In Spite Of Appearances, She Was Definitely NOT An Egghead

Susan Daniels, P.I. is desperately seeking some more attention.  Her ridiculous lawsuit alleging Obama was using a false social security number got bounced out of an Ohio court on Friday, September 7, 2012.  For good measure she was assessed costs. (See pdf below in Note 2.) This was no big surprise. I did a post about her silly claims earlier. (See notes for link.)

But darned if she isn’t right back in there trying to start a criminal investigation on Obama by filing a moronic Affidavit. I think she has gotten addicted to all the fuss and bother and drama, and just plain doesn’t want to be out of the Birther spotlight, or headlines. The story is reported at ObamaReleaseYourRecords.  Here is an excerpt:

Private Investigator Susan Daniels Files Affidavit Seeking 
Criminal Prosecution For Obama’s Connecticut Social Security Number

. . . I filed an Affidavit (EMBEDDED BELOW) yesterday in Geauga County Common Pleas Court. I am asking the court to issue a complaint that Barack Obama has committed a crime and should be prosecuted for identity fraud. Section “D” of ORC 2935.09 allows me the right to file. …

The court had never seen a filing like this before and to say they were upset would be an understatement. Two women kept insisting that nothing could be filed without a case number on it and I kept saying: read the statute. They were not happy and one woman said: “I’ve worked here twenty years and have never seen anything like this.” Oh well, now she has.

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2012/09/susan-daniels-seeks-criminal.html

There is a scribd of the Affidavit at the link, and a pdf in the notes below in case scribd doesn’t work right.  But here is a cut and paste job I did of the major allegations:

I bet she is right, and the people at the courthouse haven’t seen anything like this foolishness before. But do you notice that something is missing from the allegations??? Something kind of BIG and IMPORTANT??? How about like, who is the ANOTHER PERSON in sub-paragraph e??? How in the world can Daniels claim that the social security number is stolen, if she can not identify who Obama stole it from? Think about this for a minute.

She has no information from the Social Security Administration [SSA] which indicates it was stolen. Her only foundation for the claim is that the number has a Connecticut “area number”, without any backup for why it has that number. She provides no information about the inner clerical workings of the SSA. She can not discount the possibility that it was simply a typo on the zip code. In fact, the SSA clearly states that you can’t tie social security numbers into places of residence: (See original article for the link.)

Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant’s mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence.   Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

She is supposed to be a private investigator, and here she is with a social security number that she can’t link to anybody except Obama. Having someone’s social security number is the easiest way to identify them and find out things about them. Has she run any skip tracing software on the number? Has she checked with the credit reporting agencies?  Private Investigators usually have contacts on the police force and in government offices to run numbers like this for them. If she does, she obviously came up with NADA.  All of which means she has absolutely no basis for claiming the number is either stolen or misused. I hate to be mean, but considering her initial investigatory work, the lawsuit and the affidavit, she comes across to me as being pretty stupid.

This affidavit is nothing but another instance of farcical Birther Legal Theatre, and Susan Daniels, P.I. is out there hamming it up on stage for a few more minutes of attention.

Note 2. The Title. The title for this Article is based on the 1985 movie, Desperately Seeking Susan, starring Madonna, where:

Roberta (Rosanna Arquette) is an unfulfilled suburban housewife living in Fort Lee, New Jersey who is fascinated with a woman she only knows about by reading messages to and from her in the personals section of a New York City tabloid. This fascination reaches a peak when one such ad with the headline “Desperately Seeking Susan” proposes a rendezvous in Battery Park with the man who regularly seeks her. Roberta goes to Battery Park too, gets a glimpse of the woman (Madonna) and in a series of events involving mistaken identity, amnesia, and other farcical elements Roberta goes from voyeur to participant in an Alice in Wonderland-style plot, ostensibly motivated by the search for a pair of stolen Egyptian earrings.

For ESL’s, the term “egghead” in the caption, is a slangish term for:

A person who is highly academic or studious; an intellectual. A smart person, or brainiac.

The Riddle referred to in the Image Easter Egg is, “What is round on both ends and high in the middle???  Answer: Ohio.  This is where she filed the lawsuit.  The riddle also describes an egg. Apparently this riddle was used in a Broadway song:

Mindless Blathering Stupid Drivel From Susan Daniels, P.I.

Mr. Lumbergh told me to input the zip codes and I said, I don’t care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I’m, I’m quitting, I’m going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they’ve moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler then I’ll set the building on fire.

Well, over the years I have read some pretty stupid stuff from Birthers, but darn if Susan Daniels, P.I. hasn’t just made a meteoric sprint from the Stupid Basement, up the Stupid Stairs, to the Second Tier B-List Of Stupid Birthers alongside the likes of J.B. Williams, Dianna “The Dianna” Cotter, and Miki “The Mad Hawaiian” Booth.  Here is an excerpt from the Internet Article that done it:

Private Investigator Susan Daniels Debunks Obot Myth That Zip Code Clerical Error Caused Obama To Be Issued A Connecticut Social Security Number

Social security numbers, prior to June 2011, were assigned by the residential address of the person who was applying for a number. Hawaii’s zip codes start with 968 and, coincidentally, Connecticut’s start with 068. So it had to be a typo, right? Nope.

When Barack Obama was living in Hawaii, he had three zip codes: 96814, 96822 and 96826. The State of Connecticut has never had the zip codes 06822 or 06826. They did have 06814. It however, is referred to as a “Unique” number. When I contacted the post office in Danbury, where this number originated, I was told by a long-time employee that 06814 was assigned exclusively to the Union Carbide company. (The Union Carbide building opened in 1983 when construction was completed.) He said the post office took it out of service several years ago. Obama allegedly got his CT number of xxx-xx-4425 in March 1977, which can be proven since the person before him -4424 and after him -4429 both got theirs then.

Obama has a CT number. It could never have been legally assigned to him. As a resident of Hawaii, his number should start with 575 or 576. His sister’s starts with 575 and was issued at approximately the same time he started using the CT number: 1986.

Here is the link to the full article, and there is a scribd document included which is supposed to mean something, but I am not sure just what:

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2012/08/myth-busted-zip-code-clerical-error.html

Now think about her “proof” for a minute. She has laid out the fact that zip codes are laid out geographically, and then she has done her P.I. work to list all three of Obama’s possible Hawaii zip codes. And then she concludes that since none of the last two digits from the 968 Hawaii area zip code exist in the 068 Connecticut area zip code, then it could not have been a typo that caused Obama to receive a Connecticut social security number.

This is ridiculous and wrong. I will show how it is wrong below, but first I want to show the logical gaps in her ridiculous line of reasoning.  First, Daniels has not provided any factual foundation on the mechanics of entering  zip codes at the Social Security Administration (SSA).  Were the envelopes scanned, or were handwritten numbers coded in some way for computer input?  No answer.

Were all 5 digits of the zip code entered?  Did the SSA have any kind of  zip code validation process to keep up with newly issued zip codes? What were the SSA protocols relating to input errors? Did the entire system shut down if the Union Carbide zip code was coded in??? Daniels claims that she debunked the Typo Myth, but she has provided zero information on what would have happened at the SSA in 1977 if a typo occurred.  She says that zip code 06822 is invalid, but she doesn’t even try to explain what would happen at SSA if that number was input into the system. As explained below, it might have just sailed on through.

Daniels is pretty much just assuming that a typographical mistake could not not happened. Look at Milton Waddams, in the image above, and tell me mistakes don’t happen in offices. Heck, mistakes happen with doctors in operating rooms. They are constantly sewing up victims, I mean patients, with hemostats, golf balls, and the nurse’s left over french fries inside. And Daniels takes the position that typos can’t happen in a government office???

Further, Daniels has provided no information as to whether or not other such anomalies appear with other individuals. I have read that they have, but that is beyond the scope of this article. But, most importantly, she has not provided any information as to whether the SSA computers “talked to” the Postal Service’s computers in 1977. For example, would the SSA computers have any way of knowing that 06814 was assigned to Union Carbide? Or that o6822 and 06826 were unassigned by the postal Service.

How can anyone pretend to debunk the Typo Myth if they have not asked about the above clerical protocols, and have no answer as to how non-existent zip codes may have been treated by the SSA computers???  Why would any sane Birther not ask the same questions I have asked, or recognize that Daniels falls way short of proving her case??? Oops, I think I answered my own question. All the above proves Daniels’ methodology is totally flawed.

Now, let’s examine what obvious facts she overlooked because of her bias or idiocy, take your pick. Here is a zip code map from Wiki:

Notice how there are 10 regions, represented by the digits 0-9. Notice how the next 2 digits are state specific. For example, Alaska’s and California’s zip codes both start with “9”, but the next 2 digits are spread out over five states. Let’s do some math! 1 digit + 2 digits = 3 digits! From this map, a person would never need more than the first three digits to determine what state a person was applying from.

Therefore, the SSA would not need all five digits to assign a state to the applicant. “902XX” would equate to California just the same as “961XX.” Frankly, we don’t know whether the SSA input all  5 digits from the zip codes or not. We can definitely ascertain that they would have had the option of using only the first 3 digits. And that is enough to shoot down Daniels’ claims of debunking the Typo Myth with the particular argument she makes. She can’t prove the final 2 digits meant squat to the SSA.  And beyond that, she hasn’t even tried.

We also know that the SSA only cared about the state of application, and not any more detailed geographical birth or residence information. How do we know this??? Easy, the SSA tells us:

Prior to 1972, cards were issued in local Social Security offices around the country and the Area Number represented the State in which the card was issued. This did not necessarily have to be the State where the applicant lived, since a person could apply for their card in any Social Security office. Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant’s mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence.   [Note: Daniels was flatly wrong above when she said, "Social security numbers, prior to June 2011, were assigned by the residential address of the person who was applying for a number."]  Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.

http://www.ssa.gov/history/ssn/geocard.html

As shown above, the first 3 digits of the zip code are all that was necessary for the SSA’s purposes. Susan Daniels, P.I. should have picked up on some of these facts from her own arguments. She was aware that it was the first 3 digits, 068 and 968, that were state specific. Any P.I. worth their salt would have questioned whether or not the final 2 digits had any significance at all.  Any reasonable P.I. would have wanted to know if the SSA had any kind of zip code validation process. Yet, she focuses in on the last two completely unnecessary digits in the zip code to create her Masterpiece of Debunkery. And then prisses around like she proved something.

UPDATE! Reader Gorefan just left this link in the comments section, giving some credence to the idea that states could be identified by the first 3 digits of the zip code. This document is from the IRS:

Maybe for Susan Daniels, her P.I. stands for Pretty Ignorant???

Note 2. UPDATE. Reader Northland10 found some very interesting information about potential Hawaii zip codes that Daniels may have missed, so I am copying and pasting his comment here. Thank you Northland10!!!

So, Susan claims:

When Barack Obama was living in Hawaii, he had three zip codes: 96814, 96822 and 96826.

Yet, on a help page from http://books.google.com/books; Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine from Dec 1970, the Zip Code for the insurance commissioner in Honolulu is:

96811

Hmm, there is an 06811 in Danbury, CT.

And, in case she would claim that that was 1970, Google books also has results from the 1980s.

On the same Google Books search, I see the University of Hawaii had the zip code of 96813 in 1979 and 96810 was also active in the 1970s.

How does she know what zip codes Barack had or what mailing address he used on the form? For a PI, she is a very bad researcher.
